I have a large 450 page scanned PDF document and I have Acrobat 9 PRO.

 

I have a simple page with hyperlinks for 10 different roles:

 

10 different types of users need to access the same document, however every user needs to access only specific sections relevant to them in the same document.

E.g. The User selects Engineer: He is directed to Sections 3, 11, 18 and 34 of the same document.

Another user selects Administrator: She is directed to Sections 1, 3, 34, 50 and 66 of the same document.

Thank you!

Thank you.

What do you mean by "directed to [multiple places]..."? A hyperlink just takes you to one place.

Thanks for the reply. Bookmarking feature only takes you to one page.

 

What I meant was, the hyperlink should take to a navigation pane where it displays only a set of pages from the Master PDF file which are relevant to the particular user, not just one page (without having to manually extract multiple PDFs and linking them).

 

E.g. For User 1 it will display Page 2-9, 23, 55, 126 etc.

For User 2, it will display some other set of pages, all from the same master document.

You can spawn and delete template pages. Or link to attached documents.

I think by far the easiest thing will be to reprocess the PDF to make a PDF for each of 10 types of user, and just give them access to the relevant one. If this sounds daunting, it's really nothing compared to the complexity of what you currently describe.

I'd also suggest linking to attached documents. So you'd have a master PDF and then separate linked PDFs for each user. Do you have any pages that overlap between users? If so, the individual user PDFs may have some duplication. That may be OK but depends on what you intend for how the content is used and how it is maintained into the future.

And why not a pop-up menu:

var myChoice=app.popUpMenuEx(
	{
		cName: "Engineer", oSubMenu: [{
			cName: "Section 3", cReturn: "2"
		},{
			cName: "Section 11", cReturn: "23"
		},{
			cName: "Section 18", cReturn: "55"
		},{
			cName: "Section 34", cReturn: "126"
		}]
	},
	{
		cName: "Administrator", oSubMenu: [{
			cName: "Section 1", cReturn: "1"
		},{
			cName: "Section 3", cReturn: "2"
		},{
			cName: "Section 34", cReturn: "126"
		},{
			cName: "Section 50", cReturn: "150"
		},{
			cName: "Section 66", cReturn: "166"
		}]
	}
)
this.pageNum=myChoice-1;
